Study Notes

Muscular System

  • The muscular system consists of muscles that contract and relax, enabling movement and the ability to perform tasks.

Skeletal System

  • Cartilage's function in the body is to provide cushioning and support between bones, reducing friction and allowing for smooth movement.
  • The skull is the bone that protects the brain and has the jaws and mouth attached to it.

Joints

  • Pivot joints allow for rotational movement, such as the movement in our necks.

Skeletal System Function

  • The skeletal system is crucial in supporting the body, allowing us to stand straight.

Rib Cage

  • The rib cage is important in the human body because it protects vital organs such as the heart and lungs.
  • The function of the rib cage in the skeletal system is to provide protection and support for the thoracic cavity.

Bones

  • The femur is the largest bone in the human body.
  • The femur, connected to the kneecap, is the largest bone in the human body.

Joints

  • Ball and socket joints allow for multi-directional movement.

Explore how the skeletal system and the muscular system work together to enable movement in humans. Learn about the framework, support, and locomotion provided by these two systems.
